The Balloon Series

I’m calling this the balloon Series because I’m working with paint and balloons underwater. The images remind me of planets and atoms. I often think about worlds within worlds on a linear scale. In calculus, the first thing we learned was that if you think about the distance to the end of the block you are walking on, cut that distance in half, walk to that space and continue cutting the remaining distance in half, you will never reach the end of the block.

On a three-dimensional scale, I think of these spaces as containing endless universes becoming smaller and smaller. The same is true in the opposite direction. Our universe is contained by other universes and those are contained by more universes ad infinitum.

    These are just so beautiful and moving and disturbing and exciting. I could look at just one for hours.
